Now is the perfect time to get involved with protecting our freshwater resources with volunteer events, free training and education classes and family-friendly activities throughout the year!

River Day is designed to encourage appreciation and recreational use of the waterways of the Clinton River
and Lake St. Clair, and to celebrate the leadership of local citizens, organizations, and communities whose efforts are critical to protecting and enhancing the overall quality of the Clinton River watershed.

This June individuals, businesses, community groups, and local governments across the watershed will join forces on River Day to enhance and celebrate the Clinton River and Lake St. Clair. Activities range from nature hikes, canoe trips, fishing derbies, and fly fishing lessons to storm drain stenciling, river clean-ups, habitat restoration, and native landscaping.

Every year, CRWC solicits logo designs for the River Day logo contest.

This year, we had many great logo designs that were submitted by people of all ages from all over the watershed.
The winner was decided by popular vote at our Annual Meeting
and the logo will appear on this year’s official River Day event t-shirt.

CRWC would like to congratulate Joe Angelosanto, a resident of Clarkston, MI as this year’s River Day logo contest winner!

Joe is a recent retiree from General Motors, and expressed that he has more time available to do what he loves–illustrating and designing.
When asked about what inspired his design, Joe stated: “My oldest son is an adult with special needs who has always loved to fish. We have enjoyed many days fishing on the lakes in our area.I got the idea for the logo from some of the things we would see when we go fishing”
